In the olden-days, back when Windows Mobile 6.1 was the latest and greatest mobile OS on the planet, as it ran flawlessly on my beloved Samsung Blackjack 2, during the hustle and bustle of daily life, I would sometimes, very rarely mind you, find myself taking out my frustrations on my wireless device, said device being referred to these days as a Feature Phone, by, let us say, pressing the keys a little more enthusiastically than normal (smile).
Being the calm, cool, and collective person that I have become since then, believe it or not, as hard as it may be to fathom, I still find that, oh so rarely you understand, there are occasions when my enthusiasm, the result of unexpected or unwanted daily events, attempts to rear its ugly head as I interact with my now beloved iPhone 6 Plus.
Such attempts always fail as I have discovered that, on my iPhone 6 Plus, especially when VoiceOver, Apple’s software screen reading solution for the blind and low vision, is enabled, the touch-screen is much more responsive when I use a lighter press/tap/swipe then a heavier one.
So, if you find that your touch-screen device is not as responsive as it once was or not as reactive as it should be, after making sure its surface is clean, try using a soft smooth hand rather than a hard rough heavier one.
Remember, light and easy does it.
